My name is Eleanor Hill, and I live in Humboldt County—a rural area along the coast of California, about five hours north of San Francisco. Currently, I’m a full-time student in the MLIS program and a part-time library intern at my beloved alma mater, Humboldt State University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English: Teaching the Language Arts—with the intentions of teaching at the secondary level—but quickly realized after a day of classroom observations that it wasn’t my calling. To make a long story short, I’m beyond thankful to be a graduate student at SJSU and am eager to facilitate the learning of students and contribute to the field of higher education as a soon-to-be academic librarian.
Outside of academia, I enjoy—much like Dr. Stephens—forest bathing in the redwoods, spending quality time with loved ones, listening to (and sometimes attempting to mix!) techno, and traveling whenever possible.
Best of wishes to everyone, and I look forward to learning with you all this semester.
